@FriedgeHNIC. As long as the player gets what he is contracted to get...can't be negative. Owners cover 57-50% drop and escrow works same.
I know its the simple way of doing the math... but the owners shouldn't go for this.
They should only cover % difference of what the players' share was the yr they signed their contract.
All contracts signed this summer.. yes.. Owners cover the 57% to 50% drop (12.2%). the rest escrow as per usual.
BUT players who have contract that were signed when their shares were 54, 55, 55.5, or 56% etc should only have THAT difference covered.
People forget that the players only hit 57% in the final yr of the CBA!
i.e. Rocky and Vinny signed while the CBA stated 54% share... they should only get 7.4% of their contracts covered by the owners with the rest susceptible to escrow... not 12.2%.
That's the right way and fair of doing it.
Also the most complicated... but that's what accountants are for.
